The Biden government announced last week that it had agreed to a recommendation to add a jurisdiction to their list of local wage zones.

The President’s Paying Agency, made up of Labor Secretary Marty Walsh, the incumbent Bureau and Household Director Shalanda Young and Bureau of Human Resources Director Kiran Ahuja released her annual report last week looking at local pay and recommendations from the advisory federal pay council.

Last year, the pay council recommended , whose membership consists of a mix of president-appointed officials and representatives from federal employee organizations, that no changes will be made to the pay district map except one: Carroll County, Illinois, should go to Davenport. to be added, Iowa, Place Pay Area. While the county does not meet the requirement that a jurisdiction has at least 2,500 general roster employees to be part of a local wage division, it would meet this criterion if vacancies were included in the census.

The Paying Agent the President said last week that she would agree to the recommendations despite disagreeing with the idea of ​​an exemption from the job requirement – the agent preferred to change the criteria after further investigation rather than waiving on a case-by-case basis – because the county recently reached the 2,500 employee threshold.

“Although we understand that the GS employment in an area could be below the GS employment threshold due to vacancies, we do not know how many similarly located There may be locations or whether agencies actually intend to fill vacancies, ”says the Beri cht. “It was the practice of the Locality Pay Program to apply criteria uniformly for all locations in the country. The Federal Salary Council may review the January 2021 Council Recommendation on Carroll County through further analysis of the potential impact of adding vacancies in addition to strained positions in order to meet the established GS employment threshold. « 

Federal Employees in However, Carroll County, Illinois won’t see their raise right away. The paying agent’s decision is only the beginning of the process of adding the county to the Davenport, Iowa area counting area. The Human Resources Office is expected to have to issue an ordinance to implement the change next year.

The Civil Service Partnership announced last week that it would be running a new program to encourage paid internships with federal agencies to support its own efforts To complement the federal government, expand the use of federal internships and ensure the chances are paid for.

Schmidt Futures, a philanthropic group, funded the program, which started in the summer of 2022 and 2023 with 400 interns for the departments of commerce and transportation begins paying a $ 4,000 grant over 10 to 12 weeks.

Most federal agencies lag far behind private sector employers in terms of employment and the effectiveness of internship programs. Many internship programs are underutilized, and don’t turn successful interns into full-time employees.

The new program comes at a time when the Biden government is working to ensure internships attract a new generation of federal employees and those opportunities are paid for . Research shows that paid internships attract a more diverse group of interns, as unpaid internships can often only be done by wealthy students.

“Our government needs new skills, perspectives and innovative approaches to meet our country’s challenges, but she is struggling to recruit young talent, ”said Max Stier, President and CEO of the partnership. « It is important that we encourage wider interest in public service careers, harness the immense potential of a new generation to serve their country, and encourage their growth and learning. »
